This is very rash, and, misses the point of the topic. Inter-dimensional, extra-dimensional, and extra-terrestrial are all different things, relating
to different concepts. However, your generalizations are not entirely correct.
• Inter-dimensional does mean it is born of, and operates within our Universe as we understand it. This is correct. However, this does not
exclude the possibility for spiritual existences to be inter-dimensional.
The Higher Self, for example, is a spiritual-mental concept. It is entirely spiritual, and entirely inter-dimensional as it comes from an internal
dimension of ourselves.
• Extra-dimensional does constitute something we cannot perceive in our 3-dimensional space. It does not mean we cannot understand it though. You do
not need to be able to see something to be able to interpret it's meaning.
Love, for example, exists as an inter-dimensional concept of chemical reactions in the brain. However, it also exists as a binding force in the
Universe, uniting families, species, and entire planetary systems.
It does not have a length, a width, a height, or a measurement of time. It is extra-dimensional, but fully within the confines of perception and
• Extra-terrestrial, scientifically means anything "from another mass of land". This would mean any non-Earth-born organism. Meaning, beings from
Mars, or the Pleiades, or Zeta Reticuli. Again, a simple construct when scientifically defined.
Once more though, we have the concept of Panspermia. That is, the belief that life originated on Earth when an meteorite collided with our planet,
creating the primordial soup, which struck by lightning jump-started the first primitive single-celled organisms which evolved through millennium into
life as we know it now.
This would of course mean all life is extra-terrestrial.
The point of this thread is to come to an understanding of how these terms apply to the ATS forum. As in, what do members prefer to consider to be the
difference between extra-terrestrials and inter-dimensional beings?
Thanks for the response, I hope this helped clarify things for you a little bit.
